POWER SPEED & FLEXIBILITY training:
This is a 6 Month Program meant to increase the students skills & also to prepare the student for handling the weapons (Dragon Pole/Butterfly Swords). There is no additional monetary fee to attend these sessions and they are immediately open to all senior students of SiFu Crider or any new student. ALL STUDENTS are strongly encouraged to purchase the “SHADOWHAND WING CHUN POWER SPEED & FLEXIBILITY MANUAL” © from SiFu Doc Savage. These sell for $50 with free shipping on SiFu Doc Savage’s Florida based Shadowhand WIng Chun Kung Fu School Website.
This training will be available to any student 30 minutes before any regularly schedule class time, but it is the students responsibility to arrange such with SiFu Crider.
This is also the timeframe in which SiFu Crider will teach and oversee WIng Chun Iron Palm Kung Fu techniques and training. Students are encouraged to take advantage of this extra training, but attendance is not mandatory.

CANE ‘and’ A.B.L.E. Fighting Science Seminars:
From time to time SiFu Crider conducts free self defense seminars for the mobility challenged community.
A 2011 U.S. Department of Justice Report cites that persons of physical disabilities; based on actual crime statistics gathered by the F.B.I. from every police agency in every jurisdiction in the United States; are nearly twice (40%) MORE LIKELY to become victims of violent crime than their non-disabled peers in the same age group.
For this reason, realizing there is a real threat for persons of disability establishing greater need for self defense training these seminars have been, are and will always be free to persons with mobility challenges.
The name of these seminars is “CANE ‘and’ A.B.L.E. Fighting Science Seminars“tm and are divided into 3 sections comprising 4 hours and 15 minutes with 3 fifteen minute breaks between sections.
SiFu Crider is the Offical Mixed Martial Arts Instructor for “THE EXTREMITY GAMES” and has been motivational speaker since 2011 visiting Amputee Support Groups around the State of Texas speaking on his journey as both an amputee and a martial artist and giving mini self defense seminars.
The “Extremity Games” is an event similar to the “Paralympics” in which Amputees now for 10 years, gather from once national locales and now from 3 different nations during the last two main events held. The Main Event for THE EXTREMITY GAMES is held each June in New Braunfel’s Texas at “The Texas Ski Ranch” and amputees and persons of mobility challenges and limb-difference compete in extreme sports such as rock climbing, mountain biking, power lifting, kayaking, wake boarding, skate boarding, Motocross (Held each may and televised on ESPN) and Mixed Martial Arts.
The second section “CANE: Simple Yet Effective” is a Two hour no nonsense Cane Fighting Course. This course teaches core cane fighting concepts based on Kali, The Chinese Police Baton, WIng Chun hand to hand techniques & Footwork, and The Wing Chun Dragon Pole. These concepts can be learned, mastered and implemented if need be…IN THE SAME DAY!
The Third Section “A.B.L.E.” is an acronym for “ADAPTIVE BATTLE for LIMB-challenged EXTREMITIES.” SiFu Crider meets each student in the seminar on a one on one basis as well as addressing all as a whole group. IN this fashion fighting from compromised positions such as the ground, or seated positions including wheel chairs are covered and each participant is addressed from the standpoint of their own unique challenges. Breaking and lethal techniques are taught in this section and thus a liability waiver must be signed by all participants and persons from 15 to 18 years old may attend only if a parent or legal guardian also attends.
More Details as to dates and venues for these seminars can be found posted on the Facebook account dedicated to the same: https://www.facebook.com/NoRetreatNoRegrets
Because of SiFu Crider’s feelings towards groups in greater need of self defense instruction, neither police officers or mobility challenged persons will ever be charged for training with SiFu Crider and the same are welcome to attend any and all regular classes.
Sifu Crider holds ADAPTIVE CLASSES from 1pm to 3pm each Sunday. These classes overlap the regularly scheduled classes from 2pm to 4pm on Sundays that Adaptive Students may also get training time with regular students. Adaptive Students are more than welcome to stay until 4pm with the regular students if they both choose and feel up to such and may attend any regularly scheduled class times also so long as they attend adaptive classes where SiFu Crider may focus his attention entirely on the needs of the adaptive martial arts student and their progress.
